Boney Kapoor said, "Apart from Maidaan, Vakeel Saab in Telugu is a remake of the Hindi film, Pink. It stars Pawan Kalyan, who is one of the biggest stars of Telegu films. I had made this in Tamil earlier with Ajith Kumar titled Nerkonda Paarvai, which was very successful. The film is in post-production and is slated for release on April 9, 2021. It will be Pawan Kalyan’s first release after three years. Valimai in Tamil with Ajith Kumar – the entire filming will be over by February 15, 2021, barring one stunt sequence to be shot overseas. Post-production will start soon. The release date is to be finalized."
